Lyrics

I awakened deep in your garden this morning

Seeds sown and sweetness complete

I turned for the gates but your murmurs bestirred me

Please sir, delay your retreat

 

And stay with me here in my garden forever

Here in this paradise made for two

And I will deliver the fruits of your planting

A girl for me and a boy for you

 

I’ll give you everything you’ve ever dreamed of

Amethyst fountains and rubies aglow

The Earth and its treasure I’ll lay at your doorstep

A hearth and a shelter forever to know

 

You’re kind and you’re generous, sweet master gardener

To offer me shelter and treasure and fire

But there’s only one vision I’ve ever dreamed of

Only one pleasure I require

 

Please stay with me here in my garden forever

Deep in this paradise made for two

And I will deliver the fruits of love’s labor

A girl for me and a boy for you

 

Come and sit with me here in our chair by the fireside

Dream with me deeply and lovely and long

And we’ll weave our memories, present and future

Into the verses of your song

 

Please stay with me here in my garden forever

Here in this paradise made for two

And I’ll give you everything you’ve ever wanted

A girl for me and a boy for you
